This thread is dedicated to all of the wanton desires of the readers here. What is it, that elusive preparation of a food that you really, really want to see a local chef pull off and blow your mind? I had a truly tremendous experience at Trattoria Battibecco in Bologna, Italy a dozen years ago where one of my courses was a smoked octopus. It was not a tiny baby octopus, nor was it a very large adult octopus - this was more of a teenager. I got some legs, but they sent the thing out whole (sort of), so I got the body/head, mostly, too. A mind-blowingly good dish. And I have been searching for someone local to make their own iteration of a smoked octopus of similar size ever since then. Hell, I would love nothing more than a lost weekend trying a dozen versions of this all from different chefs around town. So, that is on my list. That and a stunning schmear of shellac-y good black pudding spread on to a small toast square.
